Brawn denies replacing Ferrari's Allison

Ross Brawn has denied the latest rumours about his potential return to F1.

Some Hockenheim-bound members of the sport's travelling circus spotted the former Ferrari and Mercedes man on the same flight from London to Frankfurt early on Thursday.

It triggered wild speculation Brawn, 61, could come out of retirement to replace James Allison at Ferrari.

But RTL, the German broadcaster, reports that the rumours were wide of the mark, as Brawn was in fact en route to Marburg, on the other side of Frankfurt, for the opening of a Michael Schumacher exhibition.

"In an exclusive interview with RTL presenter Florian Konig, Brawn issued a clear denial about his possible return to Ferrari," RTL said.
